TV Schedule: Saturday, Oct. 31, 7:00 p.m. ET, ESPNU

Stadium: Wallace Wade Stadium

The college football tables have turned. Normally, the Miami Hurricanes would be a powerhouse in this sport (well, you would have to go back a few years to discover that), while the Duke Blue Devils would be nothing more than a basketball school (a basketball school with massive brains, that is).

Now, Duke is ranked in the top 25 and Miami … well, Miami is coming off of its worst loss in school history. This is pretty brutal, but the Hurricanes lost to the Clemson Tigers by the score of 58-0 last weekend.

Meanwhile, the Blue Devils have a great shot at making the ACC title game. They just have to continue to do one thing, and said one thing is winning.

Thanks to Miami’s brutal loss last weekend, head coach Al Golden was fired and this program will now be scrambling to find a new identity. The pain doesn’t stop there, as Miami could be without QB Brad Kaaya thanks to an injury.

While Halloween will be in the air this Saturday, don’t expect any miracles, tricks or treats for the Hurricanes.

This one is going to be all Duke, all day.

Looking ahead, wouldn’t that be something if the Blue Devils actually won the ACC? They still have a few tests left, and winning the ACC title game — assuming they make it that far — would be quite the feat.

PREDICTION: Hurricanes 16, Blue Devils 35
